  Purpose

GATE 1 is an open-label, non-comparative, multicentric study evaluating the efficacy and tolerance of the combined use of Gemcitabine, Trastuzumab and Erlotinib as a first-line chemotherapy in metastatic pancreatic cancer patients.

The patients will be treated intravenously with Gemcitabine at a dose of 1000 mg/m2 for 30 min. For the first eight weeks, Gemcitabine will be administered once weekly for 7 weeks followed by one week of rest. Subsequently, Gemcitabine will be administered once weekly for three weeks followed by one week of rest.

Trastuzumab will be administered once a week at a dose of 4 mg/kg over 90 min. at D1 and then at 2 mg/kg over 30 min. for the subsequent infusions.

Erlotinib will be administered orally at a dose of 100 mg/day from C1D1.

The patients will be subjected to research for the EGFR, HER2 and KRAS status.

Further study details as provided by Centre Val d'Aurelle - Paul Lamarque:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Disease control rate according to RECIST criteria of the Gemcitabine, Trastuzumab and Erlotinib combination. [ Time Frame: Every 8 weeks and at the treatment completion ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    The tumor evaluation will be based on:

    • Clinical examination
    • TAP CT-scan or MRI
    • Tumor marker dosage (CEA and CA 19-9)


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Progression free survival [ Time Frame: Every 8 weeks and at the treatment completion ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

    The tumor evaluation will be based on:

    • Clinical examination
    • TAP CT-scan or MRI
    • Tumor marker dosage

  • Overall survival [ Time Frame: Every 8 weeks and at treatment completion ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Estimated Enrollment: 63
Study Start Date: June 2010
Estimated Study Completion Date: April 2015
Primary Completion Date: February 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Intervention Details:
    Drug: Gemcitabine - Trastuzumab - Erlotinib

    Treatment will be administered until disease progression, patient's refusal, unacceptable toxicity or investigator's decision.

    • Gemcitabine: IV 1000 mg/m2 on D1, D8, D15, D22, D29, D36 and D43 followed by one week of rest. Subsequently on D1, D8 and D15 followed by one week of rest.
    • Trastuzumab: IV once a week; 4 mg/kg over 90 min. at D1, and 2 mg/kg over 30 min. for the subsequent infusions.
    • Erlotinib: oral route 100 mg/day from C1D1.
